Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent instant on ballast I read the reviews prior to purchase as I have not had good luck with fluorescent fixtures in the past. The T8 replaced 2 old ballasts each twice the weight, and 4 times the uselessness. First I removed one ballast and fit the new one in the old location with the same retaining nut. While narrower and lighter, it fit the same slot. I cut the wires from that ballast first and attached by color to the new one. Then followed with the second. Not hard. The instant on with no flicker or hum is outstanding. I did all three fixtures in my basement with equal success. Highly recommend. May 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Electronic Ballast An excellent way to replace those old magnetic ballast December 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Unacceptable hum when installed, exchanged Purchased as replacement for 26 year old 4 lamp T12 fixture with 2 ballasts. New T8 bulbs. Ballast had very noticeable annoying hum that was much louder than the old ballasts. Returned to Home Deport for exchange. Exchange ballast is better but still isn't noise free--can still hear hum at about 8 feet away from fixture. October 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Replaced T12 ballast First time changing out a ballast. Turned out I had T12's with two ballasts and alot of intimidating wiring. After watching how to videos I installed this very easily and it works perfectly! Very happy with this product. April 6, 2014
